We are pleased to introduce you to the Graduate Center for Transformational Mentorship (GCTM). This innovative center was formed by Marieke Van Puymbroeck, associate dean of the Graduate School and John Lopes, dean of the Graduate School. Karen High serves as the inaugural director of the GCTM.

The center has five initiatives: 

  • Mentoring that Matters (MTM), which focuses on transformative mentorship training. The MTM program presents transformative mentorship training for faculty, postdocs, and graduate students. Badges and recognition are awarded to all participants.
  • Networking opportunities for affinity groups (faculty and students) through See Yourself in the Academy and Industry.
  • Resources for Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), training grants, and other research-integrity focused efforts that require best practices in mentoring.
  • Consulting services to departments, colleges, and labs.
  • A virtual library.

Read more on this website to find about all of these exciting initiatives, which all members of the Clemson community can participate in. We want to create spaces to promote graduate student mentoring. These spaces will promote social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
